While this films producers should be applauded for their sensible approach in teaching parents how to talk to kids about sex, the awkward reading of cue cards and embarrassing situations will produce nervous giggles among even the most jaded audiences. This film was produced by some of the pioneers of sex education whose ideas are still being challenged by school boards today.

Subject: It's a bugaboo
To have a crack voice , and no tittilating devices.

If you can't talk to your kid about sex ( and they are 43) this movie might help.. Maybe how dated it is will help... If not google skerrit boys guide to daggering for a more 2013 approach to sex ed.

Subject: What A Classic Film
This was shown to my medical school class (Dr Evans was on the faculty - and what a great guy! He taught us so much! One of many outstanding instructors at WSU Med School...the U of M guy also; he came out to lecture us too) ...this film was shown to us 10 years after it was made - and still pertinent as it was and still is today.

The most important point made here is that the parent needs to be cool calm and collected right from the beginning about answering questions about babies, where they come from, how they get out. Why? Because for ever after that kid will consider you willing to offer the further info they will want, and not have to go elsewhere for that info. And for heavens sakes, act like genitals are basically a toe you just generally you keep coverd up - otherwise its yours to do with as you please. And this film conveys that message marvelously! These two guys were nationally recognized experts in this area. How they speak in this film is exactly the way they were on clinical rounds. I remember that very well.

I was impressed by this film when I saw it in medical school and 35 years later I still find it impressive. Unquestionably the best film regarding approaching sex ed for parents that was ever made. There is nothing radical or religious or ..anything..except rational, in dealing with this issue.

Gets the highest rating of any film I've seen on this site.

Subject: LOL!
All of the comments ar correc.t..at 10:00 to 10:36 is the scene with the "child porn". Rev.Sheedy is far better than that 1980 actress from The Breakfast Club. I hope MST3K DOES have that one!!!!

So when the kids have their hands down their pants, playing around in front of everyone, we should ... let them? They never really went there, did they? A great progressive film for the time -- wish I had parents so honest.

Subject: Hmm, I hadn't thought of that.
I must admit I was quite surprised to hear that there was ever a taboo about unmarried women using tampons. How silly and sexist that is! Nice to know this film shot down that ridiculous notion!

All in all not bad really. Dated? Sure, but fundamentally true and quite well done.

Subject: Pretty Impressive for it's time
Pretty well balanced and useful film for the 1960's parent. I'm guessing that it found it's audience amongst the more enlightened and preached, in the main, to the semi-converted; but then that's so often the way.

My only quibble is the way they associate male masturbation with nocturnal emissions; still alluding to the 'letting off steam' fallacy. In addition, we're given no alternative strategy to deal with toddlers playing with themselves. Agreed it's a natural activity, however society does frown upon it in public. So how do we convey that message?

Subject: Vic Video is half-right.
The video is dated, but it still applies to children today. I think the previous comments are from people who spend too much time on youtube.com - they expect more entertainment rather than information. They're just a little less educated than us.

It's a great video.

Subject: Reviewers of film here are disturbed
I am amazed after watching this film, the negative comments that people have given in the reviews. You are just like the film participant parents in the beginning; you were taught that sex is bad, your body is bad, your genitals are bad, every ounce of talk about what is NATURAL is bad. I hope you rewatch this film again, and LEARN, and don't pass on your touchphobic, homophobic, poor upbringing to your own children. Don't mess up another generation of kids by making them think their bodies are bad.

Subject: Dry and dated
This film made in 1966 has a lot of information and good intentions, but it lacks a creative presentation.

Subject: Mmm pickles
I was hoping that this 30 minute piece about sex etc. would be more campy then chatty, but sadly I was mistaken. Although there are moments at the beginning which include rather Âhow did that happen? scenes with kids that are rather exploitive, and somewhat funny, the film just rather goes on too long and relies mostly on chit chat about sex to maintain interest. Liked the very end though, with the old womanÂs dress matching her hair.

Horrifying depiction of one's most awkward years.
All of the men figures are creepy and are probably in jail. And the old woman at the end is enough to scare the shit out of anyone from ever having sex!
Includes hot gay locker room scene.

LESSON: Watch more porn instead of asking 80 year old ladies how often you should whack it.

Subject: Wow
This would be a good film for MST3K. It's a bit dry, but then has scenes of children masturbating that could be construed as borderline child porn. The host reminds me of Count Floyd from SCTV. I expected him to flurl his cape and howl. Seriously though, this film was quite bold for 1966(I was 2 back then), too bad I didn't see it when I grew up.
